Maruti Suzuki will soon launch the facelifted version of the Ignis in the Indian market. The new facelifted version of the Ignis will be launched at the 2020 Auto Expo but before that, the brochure of the facelifted version of Ignis has been leaked online. Even though the brochure is not clear and the texts on it are unreadable, here is all the information that we can take out from it.
The new Ignis will offer a new look. It gets a new grille at the front, which is inspired by the design of the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza. The new Ignis will get more SUV-inspired design and the new parts include a new bumper, new foglamps that are vertically mounted and a faux skid plate. With the updates, the new Maruti Suzuki Ignis looks much more imposing than the current version.
From the side, the new Maruti Suzuki Ignis looks similar to the current version and even the alloy wheels are the same. The rear, however, has been updated and changes include new tail lamps with LED inserts, new number and skid plate.
The cabin of the upcoming Maruti Suzuki Ignis will offer a refreshed look. It will be tweaked slightly to offer new features. The updates include a new SmartPlay studio system that will replace the current infotainment system. Also, new upholstery and interior colour schemes will be available.
The leaked brochure by AutoPunditz suggests that the new Maruti Suzuki Ignis will offer 9 colour options. There will be 6 single tone colours and 3 dual-tone colour options. We may also get to see four variants with the new Ignis.
The Maruti Suzuki Ignis is extremely popular in India the brand has already sold more than 1 lakh models of the car. It was first launched in January 2017 and since then, it has received a cosmetic update. The Ignis will face competition from the upcoming Tata H2X, which is internally known as the Hornbill. At the time of the launch, Maruti Suzuki offered both petrol and diesel engine options with the Ignis. However, due to the low demand for the diesel variants, Maruti Suzuki discontinued the diesel-powered Ignis.
The Maruti Suzuki Ignis will get powered by a K12M 1.2-litre petrol engine that churns out a maximum power of 83 PS of maximum power at 6,000 rpm and 113 Nm of torque at 4,200 rpm. It gets a 5-speed manual transmission with an optional AMT. With the update, the price of the Maruti Suzuki Ignis may rise by a few thousand but it would not be a huge price hike.
